Yellowstone Buffalo
By Sharon Fabian

1     Can you solve this riddle? What is the largest land mammal in North America? (It can weigh two thousand pounds or more. It can run fast and plow through the snow.) What is this large animal that has a big, shaggy head?
2     If you said the American buffalo, or bison, you are correct.
3     These buffalo once roamed the Great Plains in vast herds. Then in the 1800s, they nearly became extinct when the new transcontinental railroad brought settlers and hunters to the plains. During those years, millions of buffalo were killed.
